I've played the banjo since I was about 8 years old. We had a family band, played at county fairs, I played on a tour train called, "The Heber Creeper." I've kept in practice. Everywhere I go, wherever I play, people want to jam with me. I trained with some of the best. My brothers and I would compete, Dueling Banjos vs. Orange Blossom Special. I was faster with most, but my older brother was faster on the fiddle. I was faster on the banjo. My repertoire includes a pretty fair range of bluegrass songs. Foggy Mountain Breakdown, Rocky Top, Cripple Creek, a bunch of others. Old gospel, Will the Circle Be Unbroken, Life Is Like a Mountain Railroad,
